    On Wednesday night she posted a video to her Instagram sharing her thoughts on the government shutdown. In the video, she criticized the current administration and empathized with government workers who are not getting paid.

    She ended it with this statement, "I really feel bad for these people who gotta go to fucking work to not get motherfucking paid."

    The current shutdown is on its 26th day and has forced many government workers to remain on their jobs without pay, including TSA security screeners.

    It even got the attention of Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz (D).
